Join Walden Media on Tuesday, December 11th as they celebrate the mystery and magic of The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep with their Student Writing Contest and Educator Photo Sweepstakes. Students and educators around the county will tap into their imaginations to create “eyewitness” reports and sightings of Crusoe, the Water Horse. One student will win a special screening of The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep in his/her community and one teacher will win a free trip to Scotland to visit Loch Ness, the beautiful setting of this magical story.
Student Writing Contest
Imagine if the Water Horse came to visit you. Where would you go? What would you do? Write a short story (500 words or less) highlighting Crusoe’s visit with you. Submit your story to enter a contest to win a free screening of The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep for up to 200 classmates, friends and family members.
Create your own sighting of Crusoe by photographing an image of Crusoe on Tuesday, December 11, 2007. Template images of Crusoe are available online.
